How can i get a headset (bluetooth) to work with my XP machine to be used in voip/yahoo chat/as a mic/as a headphone but primarily for Yahoo chat?

I have seen people have problems (in newsgroups) with quality,pairing etc. Does any headset that supports headset profile work with a pc?
Any recommended headsets?

Thanks for the help, but I have noticed many people on many forums complain at lack of compatibility and even in this link it does not work for all... Any thoughts?

Just FYI I use a Generic bluetooth headset and generic bluetooth dongle on my 233Mhz WinXP laptop, and it works perfectly with VoIP software I have on it. I think you should try some hardware and see how it works.

My bluetooth dongle just lists a audio source and audio target to work with(mic and speaker) that I can configure my app to use.

Quality is not great, but passable, I would not listen to music on this thing, but I do make phone calls.
